The wiki guide doesn't work. I ran into issues concerning moving the civi contacts...ie Drupal users. This is obviously very very crucially needed. I have over 5000 thus I cannot move forward. I was told to write a new question. So here it is. If anyone has tried this and had it fail... Please help

Update: Being that this is complicated and likely several glitches will arise after trying this again... I've opted never to do this. It's too risky and I'll lose historical information back to 2012. I'm unwilling. Seems not many successfully do this or is see much more on Stack exchange

  • Welcome to CiviCRM.SE. As with any kind of troubleshooting, we cannot really help you without details. Which wiki? At which step? Did you already import your Drupal users to WordPress? What versions of all the various platforms are you working with, and in what environment? I strongly encourage you to take the site tour and review the help center for additional guidance.

  • Your commentary doesn't help and the versions aren't relevant to give advice. I'd give those things if you'd given me some kind of suggestion like below Commented Sep 27, 2017 at 3:46
  • My commentary is designed to help you improve the question, which is why I made it as a comment and not an answer. StackExchange is not a discussion forum; the answers are supposed to be definitive and well-referenced, but the questions likewise are supposed to be clear and well-researched.

  • You see there is an answer someone wrote. You trying to belittle my question is rather inappropriate and talking about my post like I'm a child. One wonders why you are a moderator when you obviously have little else to do other than tell people their questions aren't good enough. Commented Sep 28, 2017 at 15:17

Export a csv list from Drupal or phpmyadmin? Then import it into WordPress via a plugin like https://wordpress.org/plugins/import-users-from-csv/ You can disable/delete the plugin after you are done. You will also want to use the plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/civicrm-wp-member-sync/ to create/sync the users in Civi.

  • I want to others to give feedback. I've not implemented this yet and want to see if there might be other wrinkles in this process which I didn't see. Thanks again. Commented Sep 28, 2017 at 15:18
  • It didn't work and I've not tried to do this in production Commented Oct 13, 2017 at 23:34
  • Also there are no instructions on getting CSV import out of Drupal...I couldn't find this functionality anywhere and Drupal is very complicated. I tried one method but the file would not go into WordPress via plugin. Therefore I'm giving up. This is just too risky and complex Commented Oct 13, 2017 at 23:36
  • To anyone else that is researching this same question looking for answers... This solution will work if you have a csv file.

  • You did not explain how to create one or how exports work in Drupal so the question is not answered Commented Oct 16, 2017 at 1:12
